how many sheet of 4x8 sheating would I require to cover 22sqft?
I'm bulding a 20 x 26 garage with a cottage roof and need 4x8 sheeting to cover it.

A 4' x 8' piece of sheeting equals 32 square feet (length in feet x width in feet = square feet).

20' x 26' equals 520 square feet. As there is 32 square feet in a 4' x 8' piece of plywood, divide 520 by 32, which equals 16.25 pieces. You'll need 17 pieces of 4' x 8' sheeting, IF you have a flat roof.

If your roof isn't flat, you'll need more than that.
